Comment appreciated and definitely not offended. I like the parallels you draw, but without offending anyone myself, I sometimes wonder if the 1911 and even the Kimber, are great because people say
they are great, not due to proof positive. Now, granted, the military used them for, what, over 70 years, so that's one massive big plus in their direction. But, that was the days before polymer and if we didn't have a new design coming out every month, who's to say they wouldn't have used an XD or Glock for 70 years had it been available back then.
Good thoughts to chew on. If I save my nickels and dimes, I might be able to get myself the Glock as well, but I just don't know if I break out the 1911 enough to make it worth holding onto.
@Rollo-- that is the ONE thing that has kept me from moving forward with this post haste. I sold a USP .40 years back when I didn't necessarily need the cash, but wanted the cash. I kick myself for that one.
